Back to Work!

The inevitable has occurred. I have returned to work. boohoo!

Actually, it's not as bad as all that. I was very stressed and worried in the weeks leading up to the big day. I was worried because I am still breastfeeding Atticus and hadn't taught him to drink from a cup (instead of using a bottle - the nurses at the Early Childhood Centre suggested I try it). I was worried that he would play up a lot for his dad (who is minding him on the three days that I'm working). I was worried that everyone at work would like my replacement better than me and be annoyed that I've returned because it means he has to leave.

Well, I've been back for two weeks now and am settling in. Everyone does like my replacement a lot, but they are also happy to see me return. I'm slowly getting my head around all the changes and getting back into the swing of things. I still miss Atti like crazy but it's also nice not having to worry about him too much.
